Both Meghalaya and Nagaland will see voting on February 27, 2018.
PM Modi will address an election rally at Tuensang district of Nagaland, about 360 km from capital Kohima, state BJP general secretary Gaangsilung told PTI.
There are six Assembly seats in Tuensang district in the eastern part of Nagaland. BJP has fielded candidates on four seats while its ally Nationalist Democratic Progressive Party (NDPP) nominees are in the fray on the rest two constituencies.
From here the PM will go to Meghalaya to address a rally in West Garo Hills district, considered as the Congress bastion since statehood in 1972.
The rally at Phulbari town will be his second campaign meeting in the state. His first was when he began his campaign from here in December 2017 where he had also inaugurated the Shillong-Nongstoin-Tura highway.
BJP has fielded candidates on 47 seats out of a total of 60 in Meghalaya.
